Loch Ness Boat Tours

Jacobite Loch Ness boat
Traveling to Scotland and not visit the Lake Ness It is like traveling to France and not visiting the Eiffel Tower. Believe or not in the legends, whether or not Nessie's story convinces you, you should go to the second largest lake in the country, the one with the most capacity for being very deep. They will not let you look for the famous monster snorkeling or diving, but you will enjoy a pleasant experience that is worth living.

As you will see below, there are various modalities for which you can opt based on the time and money you have. The most basic includes the cruise and that's it, but you can also visit the historic ruins of Urquhart Castle or the Loch Ness Monster Exhibition Center.

The company that takes care of everything is Jacobite, which has up to eight different tours that last from 1 hour to 6 and a half hours. You choose! You can buy tickets there, but you can also do it online through the website www.jacobite.co.uk.

I have to say that my experience was very positive. I opted for the Inspiration tour and I couldn't visit Urquhart Castle, but I really enjoyed the cruise on a lake that hides such a famous legend. It is a very quiet journey that is enjoyed with comments and background music. It is, in short, highly recommended.
